Colourful Stirfry (using LEFTOVERS)

This week started with Rosh Hashanah and since we cooked a whole bunch of food for that, we’ve just been eating the leftovers the past few days. For the most part, we’ve just been eating the dishes as they are. But for today’s post, we got a little creative. This was a delicious stirfry with…

Rosh Hashanah Sweets

Hope your week is off to a good start. Jewish new year started Sunday night so I had a big meal with my family. I totally forgot to take pictures of the food but I did manage to remember dessert! – Honey Cake: This is a recipe that we’ve made every year for as long…

Weekly Roundup: Muffins & Barley Soup

Hello everyone, hope your Fall is off to a great start. The weather where I live has dropped significantly in the past couple of days so all I want to do is curl up on the couch in comfy clothes. It’s also just been a busy week for me between work and life, so my…

Weekly Roundup: Soup, Rice Rolls & Stirfry

It’s been a little weird not posting several times this week, but let’s see how this goes. Please let me know if you like this new format of posting! Like I said in my last post this is a big experiment for me, so any advice is greatly appreciated! But here I am, ready for…

Challenge Complete + Comments

Just like I’ve done for all my previous cookbook challenges, I will talk about my thoughts and favourite recipes from the Brave New Meal book. This book is very similar in style to Thug Kitchen 101 because it’s the same authors, so it has the wild vulgar language and humour. It obviously is still a…

Grapefruit Cake

We are moving along in the dessert section and today we have this grapefruit cake. I am one of those people who love grapefruit so I was very excited about this recipe. This cake seemed to promise a bunch of grapefruit flavour because there is juice and zest in the cake and then actual grapefruit…

Green Grape Pie

This, this was an interesting recipe. I’ll say it right now though, give it a chance. I love all kinds of pie but had never heard of grape pie before. When I first saw this recipe, I thought “there’s no way it could be good”. The idea of hot and cooked grapes doesn’t sound great…

Strawberry Rosewater Cheesecake

Mmm cheesecake. It’s one of my favourite desserts. But as we know, the Brave New Meal cookbook is a vegan one which means this cheesecake is not made with cream cheese. This is made with cashews! When soaked (and blended), cashews give such a nice creaminess to whatever you use them in – which was…

Simple Sesame Noodles

I have made it to the final main dish recipe of this cookbook!! That’s pretty wild to me that I only have one more section of recipes to go. This was quite a good ending though I’m so happy with how is cookbook has gone so far. So today’s recipe is these sesame noodles with…
